All presidential candidates appreciate a good endorsement, but Donald Trump has just received the opposite from quite a few notable celebrities. The GOP front-runner, 69, is the subject of a new campaign called Stop Hate, Dump Trump aimed at ending his race to the White House. 

The online organization calls Trump “a grave threat to democracy, freedom, human rights, equality, and the welfare of our country and all our people.”

Arguably the most controversial candidate in the race, the New York billionaire has been slammed for a variety of reasons, from his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States to his crude comments about women.
